Quality night lads just got home, almost 6000 fans there amazing support. Fire first half from both teams but we dominated the second, Gayle is on fire.
Don't know what's wrong with Diame, he's good off the ball but with the ball he doesn't know when to run when to pass, had a few chances to score tonight and missed them.
19 Oct 2016 10:53:32
That's meant to say dire first half.
21 Oct 2016 04:32:14
Diame is poor Dummet Goufran and Anita are just OK and Perez is just wishy washy.
3/ 4 players needed in January including a playmaker for cover for Shelvey.
That is if we are serious about automatic promotion.
21 Oct 2016 11:15:29
At the moment I only see behind the striker as a position that needs strengthening.
13 Sep 2016 10:50:23
Hope to see Lazaar, Atsu and maybe Murphy or Mitro tonight. Another 3 points please.
31 Aug 2016 23:13:56
So, an overview of our transfer window:
Wijnaldum, Townsend, Sissoko, Krul, Janmaat, Taylor, Coloccini, Cabella, Cisse, Riviere, De Jong, Thauvin, Saivet, Ameobi, Mbabu, Sterry, Armstrong
for a total of £85million
Sels, Gamez, Yedlin, Clark, Hanley, Lazaar, Hayden, Diame, Ritchie, Atsu, Gayle, Murphy

How many JT 26?
01 Sep 2016 00:03:18
Wow bit more thorough there Vida thank you haha.
01 Sep 2016 08:18:48
We have lost some very good players. I will watch witb interest how sissoko, townsend and Wijnaldum fair this season. Was it the club or players at fault.
Raffa will be Mike Ashleys wet dream if we go up and give him a 30m profit on transfers. Will it make him change his approach if we do go up or will he expect Raffa to do a Leicester?
This has been the weirdest 6 months ever in my 34 years supporting the team.
01 Sep 2016 11:20:37
Hi Des, I think in January we may see another Striker and Winger and possibly a play maker, depending on results.
And the wages have been vastly reduced.
Disappointment after all the touted names of proven strikers we eventually got a seasoned older strike, but to be fair he needs a chance.
If we are promoted Rafa will want a war chest and hopefully Ashley will back him because as we have just seen the transfer fees have gone through the ceiling.
Bony and especially Remey (who's girlfriend told him she wants to stay in London and cause all the problems before) have shown their true colors NO Ambition.
01 Sep 2016 11:45:46
Well put art.
We need some experienced and a gritty sort of target man striker in daryl murphy, he will get stuck in.
Keith Downie from ssn reckons there will be a deal in place for alan judge to join in january.
I think its good business from the people from the top and hope they carry on to back rafa like they have, as at the moment we are a club on the up.
01 Sep 2016 14:30:31
JT They have no choice, it is like having a navigator, if you don't follow instructions you get lost, just like we have been for 9 + years.
31 Aug 2016 14:23:39
Would people be content if Atsu is our last signing providing only sissoko leaves? (if he even does)
31 Aug 2016 15:02:26
We have enough players barring injuries to go up
The Striker names linked are a joke, despite the 3 we now. have we needed a player like Bost etc, time will tell.
30 Aug 2016 14:35:10
Rafael Benitez has no interest in signing former Manchester United and West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison.
30 Aug 2016 22:12:55
Great news. No more knobs at SJP please Raffa.
30 Aug 2016 00:07:51
Callum McManaman reported to be following Atsu in, a lot of fans generally not happy with this due to the horror tackle on haidara. hasn't really done a lot since that cup final v city for wigan where he was electric.
For me though, if rafa is happy with him, i'm happy with him and I hope if he does come, he'll receive our full support.
30 Aug 2016 00:49:22
Yes I agree without going over things, the arrogance on the chairman and Martinez over the incident
(which was a horrendous tackle) defending it did not help.
He would be a good addition.
30 Aug 2016 00:50:14
Sorry jtoon I just can't forgive him for that tackle, and the idiot chairman Whelan saying it was a fair challenge. He should never be seen in a black and white shirt, mcmanaman that is.
30 Aug 2016 10:06:32
Plunjar it's a fair point however mitrovic could have broken Walker's leg with that horror tackle against Spurs in May, yet people still love him?
We'll see what happens.
30 Aug 2016 12:55:23
That's true. I think in hindsight it was the way Whelan and Martinez try to play it down and say it was a decent challenge.
29 Aug 2016 19:38:19
Atsu deal agreed on his way.
29 Aug 2016 19:53:29
Adds more pace on the wings hasn't really established himself in English football yet so hopefully he has a point to prove.
28 Aug 2016 20:19:27
Been watching the Moroccan lad on you tube, looks like he has good shot on him and a trick or two. Let's hope he can defend?!?
28 Aug 2016 23:37:26
Hope so plunjar. Can also play on the wing I've heard of we need him to.
29 Aug 2016 13:28:39
Cabellas video was sensational. Cisses was rubbish. 6 goals and 4 of them were penalties. let's see how he goes!
29 Aug 2016 19:25:42
Des watch the Toon
Are you happy now with the signings?
30 Aug 2016 07:19:36
Vida after last season I am reserving judgement until May 2017.
27 Aug 2016 13:37:11
We've agreed a fee with Ipswich for 6"3 striker Daryl Murphy. Exactly what we need, a bit of grit, championship experience and height up front, he can do a job for us to help get us promoted. And at last we're addressing the lack of wingers and pace in our squash with the Lazaar, Atsu and Yedlin signings.
Looks like our last bit of business will be Murphy, Atsu, Lazaar and possibly Alan Judge if that deal still goes ahead, then as long as it's only the likes of Sissoko and Riviere that leave and we keep Tiote, I think we're done.
Need to beat Brighton now to show we mean business about promotion.
27 Aug 2016 14:15:12
Hope so BUT wishful thinking It seems these players aee waiting to see if any PL teams come in for them
We are are a championship team and that's starting to sink in.
27 Aug 2016 14:26:46
Squad not squash.
28 Aug 2016 08:31:13
You can't drink squad.
27 Aug 2016 07:07:35
I'm hearing haller and atsu will be the final 2 in, the haller deal could still fall through. Money seems to be the sticking point, and the judge deal doesn't look like it's going to happen.
27 Aug 2016 12:59:38
Problem Charnley is the negotiator.
27 Aug 2016 13:37:26
Striker will be Murphy.
26 Aug 2016 14:20:31
Lots more talk about Sissoko going to Palace now. I think this will happen on deadline day. I have a couple of mates who are palace fans. They still think Pardew is great so Sissoko will be like Messi for them. No time to get replacements again. January might have to be a big window for us. If we are in the top two we might stand a chance of signing better players.
26 Aug 2016 15:49:14
Starved for years Pardew fills a temporary void, but the fans wll wake up ths season.
26 Aug 2016 16:09:12
Starting to see a lot more palace fans turning on pardew now.
26 Aug 2016 23:30:37
McLaren is free.
23 Aug 2016 23:41:21
£7.5million fee agreed for Janmaat to go to Watford. At least he got his head down and played when asked to and didn't always mention wanting to play for Real Madrid unlike someone.
Been a good servant to the club, a bit sad to see him go as I do think he did care, but in terms of us moving forward as a club I don't think he's a massive loss.
24 Aug 2016 19:32:15
23 Aug 2016 23:18:56
Jamaat going to Watford. YES THAT'S WHAT I SAID WATFORD? what is the matter with these players NEWCASTLE OR WATFORD.? fair enough if it's Arsenal or Liverpool etc. etc. But Watford! The man is a baffoon.
24 Aug 2016 22:34:03
Pluny we could have said the same about leicester a year ago. The fact is we are not even showing the ambition to get back up.
24 Aug 2016 23:06:28
Think it's been difficult Des 9 players and we are stll 3/ 4 quality players short I think Rafa has concentrated on numbers with a few quality players.
It's been hard as I understand he has told Ashley he will balance the books and I believe that is exactly what he has done so far.
A lot of players because of the damage Ashley has done
even with Rafa are reluctant to come to Newcastle.
We need points now so we depend on Rafa to bring in these pkayers but time is running out.
Lot of business still to be done, just hope we are part if it.
25 Aug 2016 02:40:17
Agree Vida. I am beginning to think it could be two seasons before we get back up. No doubt the squad is weaker. Ashley doesn't seem too bothered either way. The Sissoko situation is a farce and I expect a transfer request on deadline day.
A lot of the players look scared to me. I watched a great documentary on Bein Sports about the famous 4-3 liverpool game. We need players to be that brave. Not suggesting we go crazy but we need to get out of the traps early and impose ourselves on teams. Yedlin will at least give us pace. If Sissoko stays we should unleash him too.
Here is hoping we can get two more quality players in.
25 Aug 2016 10:31:23
Getting relegated meant that our squad was only ever going to get weaker. No way would we be able to replace the likes of wijnaldum with better quality players. Janmaat/ Townsend/ wijnaldum all left for premier league football which is fair enough. But I'm happy with the new signings so far who have replaced the deadwood, as they not only give us championship experience but also feature leadership qualities and fill our squad with players with better work ethic. We still need 2-3 signings though.
23 Aug 2016 22:20:52
Could have been 6 but 2 will do
Injuries nightmare, perhaps they will get a move on for a striker because injuries will continue and we do not have a fiull compliment.
24 Aug 2016 00:27:39
We were por tonight Lack lustre
Lancelles and one or 2 more OK but they need a rocket up their jacksy
We will struggle on Saturday with this sort of performance
best we will get is a draw!
24 Aug 2016 13:38:06
Anyone starting to think Rafa has the biggest challenge of his career on his hands?
24 Aug 2016 23:07:46
Yes he has for sure, it is a learning curve for him as well.
